It's the Delano talking
21 December 2014 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

After Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter another American president made his reputation defeating the great werewolf conspiracy to take over the world. I'll bet you didn't know that about Franklin D. Roosevelt also known as FDR: American Badass. With standards like these to live up to, no wonder future presidents have so much trouble.

It all starts when Governor FDR has a brush with a werewolf who bit him on the leg. Quick medical attention saved his life, but he was given a case of polio which left his legs paralyzed and shriveled. Also a definite turnoff for wife Eleanor played by Lin Shaye.

Barry Bostwick who plays FDR has the patrician accent, but a gutter sense of humor a lot like some of the low brow politicians who put him in the White House. After being diagnosed with polio he's relieved to hear his male member is still good for any kind of use he has in mind.

This was no accident however that a werewolf was on the grounds of Hyde Park. The leaders of Germany, Italy, and Japan are all werewolves and they've formed an axis to take over the world. FDR has a personal interest in ridding the world of this menace.

When war comes FDR takes the crusade to those werewolf powers and I do mean personally. Silver bullets have been issued to our troops on land and sea and air. In the end he gets the job done himself. A proactive war leader the way Lincoln was in Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter.

Speaking of Lincoln, when FDR is in a moment of crisis the White House butler tells him about George Washington's secret stash of hash. And while tripping out Kevin Sorbo as Lincoln gives him a trip like Peter Pan gave the Darling kids and Bostwick's duty is clear.

When I was young and growing with parents who lived through the Depression and World War II, FDR was one god like figure and you'd never see a film like this. Surviving people of the previous generation probably wouldn't appreciate this film and it's not the greatest comedy I've ever seen. Still a few laughs will be had.
